Minimally-invasive robotic implant surgery

A minimally-invasive surgery experience focuses on the implementation of refined robotic surgical techniques. This allows to fully respect the sensitivity of the patient. We accomplish this through the use of biocompatible materials of the highest quality.

Dr. Mura and our entire team tend to patients right from their first appointment, all through surgery, and also during post-treatment care.

Studio Mura's minimally-invasive and robotic surgical techniques are painless because they eliminate surgical stress and achieve faster healing times.

In the morning, once surgery is over, our patients remain in the clinic for observation, while they are monitored for a couple of hours before being discharged. They are then supervised through follow-ups for a few days after surgery, since we always give our patients our fullest attention.

FAQ

  • A dental implant is a titanium medical device used for the aesthetic-functional rehabilitation of one or more teeth that have fallen out or are missing due to agenesis (the congenital absence of teeth).

    A crown or bridge can be anchored to this titanium root, which helps restore the comfort, function, and beauty of healthy teeth in a stable and lasting manner.

  • The “Split Crest Flapless” surgical protocol makes implant placement absolutely non invasive and painless, even in patients with poor bone support. 

    This procedure was designed and has been implemented by Dr. Mura for over 30 years. After many years of follow-ups and positive results, this protocol was published in international scientific journals and is still considered cutting-edge.

  • Dr. Mura has been studying and applying state-of-the-art techniques for implant supported prostheses since 1980. 

    He has designed and implemented an immediate-loading protocol for front teeth, which allows implants to be placed at the same time that one or more unrecoverable teeth are extracted, restoring immediate function and aesthetics with implant-supported teeth. With this protocol, our patients can have a fixed reconstruction of their teeth on the same day surgery is performed and their teeth are extracted.

  • Minimally-invasive implant robotics improves computer-assisted surgery. Planning implant surgery through the use of a computer gives us the advantage of a three-dimensional simulation and reconstruction of the patient's jaws. 

    This allows us to accurately plan implants in advance, which are then placed in their ideal position and in an ideal number.

  • Dr. Mura plans computer-assisted implant surgeries using an engineered system thatsimulates and creates a 3D reconstruction of the patient's jaws, based on Cone BeamComputed Tomography (CBCT X-Rays).

    With this simulation, the ideal position and number of implants to be placed can beaccurately determined for a better aesthetic-functional result that restores harmony to thepatient’s face and smile.

    Even for back teeth, in most cases, a temporary tooth, which is designed and prepared with the aid of the computer, can be placed immediately after implant surgery.

  • In patients who are totally edentulous (who are missing all their teeth), our carefully-planning technique has, for over 30 years, been allowing our patients to leave the clinic with a temporary fixed dental prosthesis right after surgery. 

    This gives patients the freedom to chew immediately, have good aesthetics, and lead a normal life during the healing process, while they wait for their final prosthesis.

    Extensive case histories, and the experience we have gained with our technique, have enabled us to use the cutting-edge technologies offered by computer-assisted surgery, based on 3D reconstructions with Cone Beam CBCT X-rays. All this with scientific expertise and a personalized approach. 

    Computer-assisted surgery also allows us to perform procedures that are faster and more comfortable for our patients, who can then leave the clinic with a temporary prosthesis immediately after surgery.

  • This is a congenital condition involving the absence of one or more buds of permanent teeth, and the subsequent absence of these teeth in the jaw bone. Agenesis can impair the growth and position of contiguous teeth, therefore, damaging chewing function and affecting aesthetics.

    At Studio Mura, we assess proper bone growth of the jaws and also the proper growth of teeth, as early as between infancy and childhood. With an early diagnosis and, if necessary, through X-rays, we are able to identify agenesis and develop appropriate multidisciplinary treatment plans, such as:

    1. Orthodontic treatments - when the agenesis involves premolars or molars. Here, we intervene by moving the teeth in the dental arch, in order to close the spaces caused by the agenesis and restore an aesthetic and functional balance.

    2. Orthodontic-prosthetic treatments - when the agenesis involves the front teeth. Here, we intervene by orthodontically restoring the spaces required for placing implants and porcelain crowns, with a correct shape and size for good aesthetics.These specially created spaces must be maintained using a Maryland-type bridge, until the patient’s bone stops growing (estimated age: early twenties), before implants can beplaced.

    In adults, agenesis can be resolved by creating space for implant placement, or by using a Maryland-type bridge that, bonded to the teeth, replaces the aesthetics and function of the missing tooth.

  • This is a bridge used for replacing missing front or back teeth that is attached to adjoining teeth.

    Another solution than can resolve blemishes caused by agenesis of the front teeth can be cosmetic reshaping through the use of porcelain veneers.

  • Bridges are a fixed partial denture made up of artificial teeth that replace missing ones. They are cemented to adjoining natural teeth that act as supporting pillars.

  • When a patient's entire dentition is severely damaged, and both aesthetics and function are compromised, we can resolve this through comprehensive aesthetic-functional rehabilitation for either the upper or lower arch or both.

    With the aid of an intraoral camera, the patient can, along with us, see an initial view of their entire mouth, which is projected onto a screen. This helps them understand the details of any potential pathology.

    With an intraoral optical scanner, we take impressions that we process through a computerized system. This allows us to simulate functional and aesthetic reconstructions and view them, so that we can then explain the required treatment plans to our patient.

    The purpose of these simulations is to also give our patients the opportunity to observe the results of the treatment on the screen, in a more objective and detached manner.

    After the instrumental investigations, Dr. Mura offers his clinical opinion and formulates a diagnosis, explaining to the patient which therapies are most urgent and the plan that is needed to complete the treatment.
